So I’ve had about 20 cups of tea in the last 4 days. I couldn’t write a note on any of them because they pretty much all tasted like hot water with an essence of tea. I got the friggin flu. I still have it. It sucks! It’s like the worst cold in history plus the added benefit of chills and body aches. Awesome.

Anyway, my only method of staying hydrated has been tea. And I’ve had a ton. But like I said, I haven’t been able to taste it. Until last night.

I have no idea if this tea is nearly as good as I thought it was, but I could taste it, and it tasted amazing. Maybe it’s the high fever or simply the desire to taste something so badly, or that it really is good. Regardless, I enjoyed it. Immensly. I love genmai cha. I love chai. But it really sounds like a strange combo, but I’m not turned off by strange, so I bought it. It is so perfectly roasty & toasty and even a smidge salty, but really spicy as well. I guzzled it down and immediately made some more.

I’ll have to try it again whenever this flu finally goes away. Hopefully that’s not as far off as everyone says. Assuming I have any left by the end it.

Simmered 4 min in water and then strained.
Exactly as advertised. This is a extremely pleasant, aromatic and well balanced blend that needs no sugar or anything at all to accompany it. The toasty notes of the genmaicha hold there own against the spices and provide a wonderful base for the spices to build on. For the weight conscious looking for the benefits of chai with out added sugar and milk calories. Not for someone who enjoys the flavor smack in the face of extremely strong chai as it is very mild comparatively…
My Favorite Chai!
